about where wealthy folks are, with respect to the obama administration. and we saw all the data on wall street, the pendulum swinging away from barack obama towards mitt romney, how much of it is genuine self-interest in the sense of, just something as simple as the amount of taxes they will pay? >> i would say all of it. i really would. i would say all ofรง it. the banks have two choices. four years ago, they had the choice between barack obama and they knew exactly who he was going to appoint in terms of ben bernanke and timothy geithner, the combination of the team that had saved the world from utter financial collapse. and that's what they knew they needed. and john mccain, on the other hand, was running around like a headless chicken, and they were scared, they were petrified he would become president, especially with his vice presidential candidate. so they voted in their self-interest, because they knew that the system needed to be saved. now that the system is saved is, they just want to pay less taxes. >> that gets to this question of narrow self-interest versus broad self-int

for citizens to petition the obama administration to take action on issues that they find very important to themselves. the the site makes civic engagement easy and has sparked some interesting causes. and its policy of issuing a response if a petition gathering 25,000 signatures in 30 days has caught the attention of the internet trolls. it was the forum used by over 100,000 texans to secede from the united states, which resulted in another petition to withdraw. anything can happen. you can see where this is going. but there's one petition on the site that we here at "the ed show" can certainly get behind. it's a substantial stimulus project that would create millions of jobs, boost america's steel industry, got to love that, expand our space program, and basically guarantee our national security. what could be better? someone has petitioned the administration to build a death star. the fictional moon-size space base capable of destroying entire planets from "star wars." just under 2,000 people have signed the petition to ask president obama to secure the resources to construct a death

assignment in mind for the governor. >> breaking news, there is no job for mitt romney in the obama administration but mitt romney will get to full full a lifelong dream tomorrow. he is going to walk into the white house, not the way he wanted it. president obama is keeping a promise he made on election night by having a private lunch with romney on thursday. a few weeks ago, president obama said romney could actually bring something to the table. >> i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. that skill set applies to the federal government. >> turns out, romney doesn't have an eye on helping the country. he is helping to move on into an office at his son, tag's private equity firm. it is unclear what role he will be playing. he spenlt the last seven years running to serve his country and now he is going back to the private sector. he is not out serving the public or helping the country move forward. this just underscores everything we thought about mitt romney. all he cares about is money. good for him. >>> romney campaign strategist, stuart stevens is complaining about

enjoy joining the obama administration, sbt it? >> based on the readout that we got from that meeting, i would say so. they talked about where there might be said interests, maybe that's why they talked about america's role in the world by all of the reports. you know, if you cannot agree on any of the fundamentals about what america is, what the common ground is from that election and you heard stewart stevens, there's one thing to not believe the polls beforehand but you've got to believe the poms afterwards. there is no common ground here. if governor romney had taken a different position about health care, maybe there could have been common ground at this point. he ran away from the very policy that the president embraced. he ran away from his own record. >> usually when people say, we'll stay in touch, that means they are not going to be talking often. >> exactly. >> but karen, the republicans seemed reluctant to talk about the luncheon but senator reid seemed to be pretty happy to talk about it. let me show what you he said. >> i think this is great. none of us here have any ill wi

of the attempt of the obama administration, correctly, to try to you know force the republicans to play ball on their terms, reality is, the collateral damage done to the poor in the meantime is so devastating, because the margin of reserve for those middle class, even compared to the poor is more significant than when you're making a dollar that you talked about and you've got go there -- i was on food stamps for three years i understand what it means to be on food stamps. most people are on welfare for two years or less, they use it as a stopgap measure. most people do not pimp the system. the perception is they pimp the system. you ain't doing much pimping on food stamps. about your a low rent pimp if you're on food stamps. >> alex? >> go ahead. >> reporter: i understand michael's point but i think he's giving obama -- underselling obama's effectiveness so far a little bit. obama doesn't talk a lot about the poor but in the negotiations, especialfully 2010, the president, his team, gene sperling and others were effective in protecting poor people's programs, and benefits, and i think they

. is that accurate? how do you read this? >> this has been a disaster for the obama administration. this has been a failure. the congress has been at the president's throat about this. basically what could happen here, instead of closing it all at once, this report suggests that the 166 people left can be brought one at a time into the united states to be tried. some of these people have been there for almost ten years and charges haven't been brought against them. some will be charged by military tribe unl in guantanamo. some can be tried in american courts in america through some combination. that's pretty much how it looks like it will be. it will be thinned out if not closed. there are six prisons and federal prisons that can handle these gitmo detainees. it also says that the changes should be made at some of the sites. what are we talking about logistically. >> it doesn't strike me as all that lodgist iing -- a huge logistical challenge. i have been to guantanamo a couple of times. the prisons built there are actually built on the models, the actual physical plans of american maximum securi
